First ever – Chalk-a-lot at University Schools

Chalkalot 1Our students recently participated in the first ever “chalk-a-lot” experience at University Schools.  This past fall, the City of Greeley hosted an event called, “Chalk-a-lot” on the campus of University of Northern Colorado.  The goal of the event was to create something wonderful as a community, as well as trying to set a new record for the Guinness World Records.

Although our students were not chalking parking lots at UNC, elementary students did use a lot of chalk on the playground.  Our class voted on our favorite read aloud book and no one was surprised that How to Steal a Dog was our class favorite.  This is a book on overcoming poverty as a young girl named Georgina is living in her car with her brother and mother.  She plans to steal a dog to earn reward money to help her family.
